Obi - prognosis

So it's been a tough week. There's good news and there's bad news. The good news is that all the tests that have been performed have come back negative. Basically, this means that the cancer hasn't spread to any major organs, nor is is present in the lymphatic system. The bad news is that the one o the tumours was malignant. Also, for some other strange reason I've contracted some strange allergic reaction to something. My skin is quite warm to the touch and red. I haven't been able to eat anything all day. Roger says that no appetite for a dog can be quite strange, especially considering the number of things I have eaten in the past (we won't list those unmentionable things here). 

So basically the melanoma has been found in my mouth, but only in one place. The tumour that was removed over 10 days ago was malignant, but the other growths have come back negative. Tracey and Roger are quite concerned about me. They'll probably be taking me to the vet again either tomorrow or Monday. To get a diagnosis for oral cancer is quite a blow, but my current condition has left us baffled. 

Roger took some photos of me a few days ago, here are some of them:
